Why should the voters elect you?

"I, like many people, am unhappy with the direction North Beach has taken during the current administration. The reasons many of us have lived here are being destroyed and replaced with an ethic of greed. Rental apartments are replacing single-family homes , destroying the character of the neighborhoods, stressing the infrastructure and degrading the quality of our lives. I will not allow this to happen further. I believe in true open and honest government with citizen input, not government from the back room or by e-mail."
